Sorry, kid! It's really as simple as JOTS and I, as Raiders fans from way back, hate the Pats, and Dire/SDH love them...a few yrs back, JOTS and I literally "willed" the Pats to lose a playoff game by both sitting at our computers while watching the game, simultaneously posting HERE and wishing, and hoping, and posting...and thus GROK'd the Pats to a loss (this assumes you recall discussions of Forumites getting together in the "ether" to GROK shows, etc., etc., etc.; we of course used this "power" for "good"...well, Dire called it "evil", but he's biased, right?).

You love the Steelers though I suppose? Damn...

BTW, here's the thread where J & I "did it" to the PATS:

haha! Yes being a lifetime Raider fan the Patriots became my enemy number one since that horrible tuck rule robbed my Raiders from the Superbowl. You know the rule that is almost never called and everyone knows SUCKS! Still of course hate the Bronco's and somehow have gotten over the immaculant reception ( which was NOT legal then, yet another Raiders super bowl robbed from them ). Of course I don't want Pittsburgh to win another. No one should win that much unless it's my team

JOTS, the Immaculate Reception was by Franco Harris of the Steelers.

I know. I was saying I've gotten over my Steeler hatred due to that.We won three superbowla aince then while the tuck rule is much more fresh. BUT that SHOULD have been a dead ball by rule in those days. Replay proves it. But the raiders have their share of shit they got away with too so nobody needs to go bringing that up : )

I haven't!

Nor the tuck!

Suck, I should say.

Ah, if only my old man were alive; this would probably get him riled up enough to come to our website and join the "good fight" with us, J!

Cool.
